Given for UNC ENVR 400 seminar 12n 17 Mar 2010 (see http://www.unc.edu/~weinberg/400/archive/spring2010/). Ms Shankar is a PhD student in Environmental Sciences and Engineering at UNC Chapel Hill and a research associate in the UNC Institute for the Environment. Ambient air pollutants can damage the health of humans and their environment, including the climate system. To mitigate these harms we must identify the responsible atmospheric constituents, and understand their physical and chemical...

Given for UNC ENVR 400 seminar 12n 31 Mar 2010 (see http://www.unc.edu/~weinberg/400/archive/spring2010/). Dr Nash is a postdoc in Environmental Sciences and Engineering at UNC Chapel Hill. Passive samplers developed by Wagner and Leith allow inexpensive and unobtrusive sampling of ambient, indoor, and occupational aerosols. Thus far, optical and electron microscopy have been used to image particles with diameters less than 0.1 μm. Equations have been developed to determine the aerosol mass...

Given for UNC ENVR 400 seminar 12n 24 Mar 2010 (see http://www.unc.edu/~weinberg/400/archive/spring2010/). Ms Parron is a PhD student in Environmental Sciences and Engineering at UNC Chapel Hill. Exposure is assessed by measuring external dose, internal dose, metabolites of internal dose, or protein adducts. Antibodies are how human bodies identify and remove foreign substances. They have been used as markers of occupational exposure to several industrial diisocyanates, including toluene...

Given for UNC ENVR 400 seminar 12n 17 Mar 2010 (see http://www.unc.edu/~weinberg/400/archive/spring2010/). Ms Bordeerat is a PhD student in Environmental Sciences and Engineering at UNC Chapel Hill. Proteins in blood, especially hemoglobin (Hb), contain numerous sites capable of binding with chemicals, providing a means for measuring exposure. Since Hb adducts are much more abundant in blood and more easily obtained than DNA in tissues, they are valuable biomarkers for studying internal...

Given for UNC ENVR 400 seminar 12n 7 Apr 2010 (see http://www.unc.edu/~weinberg/400/seminar_20100407.html). Dr Coronell is Assistant Professor of Environmental Sciences and Engineering at UNC Chapel Hill, where he studies physico-chemical processes for water purification with an emphasis on membrane technologies. Reverse osmosis (RO) and nanofiltration (NF) membranes are increasingly attractive technologies for water treatment applications (e.g. desalination) because they effectively control a...

Given for UNC ENVR 400 seminar 12n 24 Feb 2010 . Jones is presently a PhD student in the UNC-Chapel Hill Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering. The National Priorities List (NPL) is a record of the United States' priority sites containing hazardous substances that pose an imminent threat to public health. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) comprise a class of compounds, several of which are defined by the US EPA as probable human carcinogens, that are among the top ten...

Carbon dioxide, methane, and ozone are the three strongest greenhouse gases. Methane and ozone react chemically in the air, which complicates our understanding of their behavior and effects. Methane and ozone reactions are catalyzed by nitrogen oxides (NOx), thus understanding NOx chemistry is key to modeling future climate. Researchers have traditionally studied NOx reactions to understand and mitigate human exposure to air pollutants. These studies focus on urban areas of greatest concern for...

Given for UNC ENVR 400 seminar 12n 10 Feb 2010 (see http://www.unc.edu/~weinberg/400/seminar_0210.html). Mr McMahan is currently a PhD student in the department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Lack of access to safe water, improper sanitation and poor hygiene all contribute to an ongoing global health and development crisis resulting in millions of deaths and massive infectious disease morbidity burdens affecting billions of persons...
